That’s all folks! The Fall Classic is over and it didn’t disappoint, despite the odd matchup between the Arizona Diamondbacks and the Texas Rangers. The Rangers won the series 4-1 with the teams splitting the first two games in Arlington and Texas winning the next three in Arizona.
Game 1 turned out to be a heartbreaker for Arizona, as the D’Backs gave up a 5-3 lead in the 9th inning and then lost 5-6, after giving up a solo home run in the bottom of the 11th inning. However, the underdogs in the series bounced back in Game 2 winning 9-1.
Despite that upset, the Rangers went on the road and got the W in Game 3, which featured a pitching duel between both bullpens. They followed that up with an 11-7 victory in Game 4. Finally, the Rangers shutout the Diamondbacks in Game 5, winning 5-0.

World Series Odds
AL League Winner Odds
Texas Rangers (2023 Record – 90-72)
The Rangers coughed up the AL West title to the Astros on the final day of the regular season. Therefore, their victory in Game 7 of the ALCS is the definition of “Revenge Game”. After allowing the Astros to win three in a row to flip the series, 3-2, in their favor, the Rangers won Game 6 and 7 with an outstanding offense. The Rangers were the underdogs in both games, winning the ALCS with final odds of +130.
The rotation won’t have Jacob deGrom, and Jon Gray due to injuries. Meanwhile, Max Scherzer struggled during his return in Game 5 against the Astros.
NL League Winner Odds
Arizona Diamondbacks (2023 Record – 84-78)
That doesn’t sound appealing. However, the D’Backs managed to upset the Phillies as +500 underdogs and are now headed for the World Series.

MLB Betting FAQs
Question: Where can I bet on the 2023 MLB World Series?
Answer: The best online sportsbooks are the safest online sportsbooks, which are those licensed in jurisdictions where online sports betting is legal in the United States. The top-rated books are Caesars, Bet365, Unibet, SugarHouse, FanDuel, SBK, BetRivers, PointsBet, MaximBet, and DraftKings
Question: What types of bets are popular with MLB baseball?
Answer: The most popular bet is the moneyline where the underdog returns more money than you wagered while the favorite requires you to risk more than you could win. There is no point spread in moneyline wagering, it is strictly whichever team wins the game, wins the bet.
However, run lines are also common, with the underdog getting +1 run while the underdog is giving 1 ½ run. Totals, or over/under betting, is another typical baseball bet where the bettor can bet over or under the posted total.
Question: Do I have to bet a lot?
Answer: No, the minimum bet is as low as $1 and accounts can be funded with as little as $10 at many of the books across the nation.
